AYURVEDIC REMEDIES FOR LEUCODERMA

LEUCODERMA

This disease is characterised by localised loss of pigmentation of the skin. According to Ayurveda this is caused by some morbidity in the live which results in the deficient production of pitta. These white patches of leucoderma often go without any physical trouble. It, however, creates a great deal of worry to the patient suffering from it because it disfigures him. This disease is also hereditary. Therefore, the marriage of the children of the patient, suffering from this disease, becomes a problem. There is a social stigma against this disease. In Ayurveda, this is considered to be a type of kushtha.

Common men who are ignorant of the actual implications of these technical terms consider leucoderma to be a type of leprosy and thus, shun the patient. This is the result of a misunderstanding. Actually in Ayurveda the term kushtha means any obstinate skin disease including leprosy. Because leucoderma is one of the obstinate skin diseases it is included under kushtha and it has nothing to do with leprosy in any form.

At times these skin patches become reddish brown, and small eruptions appear over them. They cause considerable amount of itching which is followed by watery exudation and burning sensation.

According to Ayurveda leucoderma appearing in the joint of skin and mucous membrane is difficult to cure. This disease is also difficult to be treated when it appears in old persons.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Leucoderma: Leucoderma is often caused by some disturbance in digestion. People suffering from chronic dysentery are more prone to be affected by this disease. Therefore, in the first instance steps are taken to correct the digestion and dysentery, if any, in the patient. Kutaja is the drug of choice in this condition. The bark of this plant is used in the form of a powder in the dose of one teaspoonful three times a day. Some other carminatives and laxatives can be given to the patient in a dose of four tablets three times (12 tablets in total) a day.

The most important ingredient of this recipe is katuki. This drug stimulates the liver and corrects its impairment which helps in the cure of leucoderma. It also contains copper in the form of bhasma. This metal helps in the metabolism and synthesis of melanin pigments.

The other drug which is commonly used for the treatment of this disease is bhallataka. It is prepared in the form of a linctus by adding some other medicines. This is given to the patient in a dose of one teaspoonful twice a day. This medicine may have some adverse effects on the body. These effects can, however, be prevented by taking suitable action well in advance. Before taking this linctus the inner mucous membrane should be covered with a coating of ghee or butter.

Care should be taken so that the linctus does not come into direct contact with the mucous membrane. Immediately after taking this medicine some milk may be given to the patient. While taking this medicine the patient should avoid hot things and should not expose himself to heat or sun rays. If in spite of all these precautions skin rashes appear, then the pulp of raw coconut should be given to the patient to be eaten. This eliminates all the toxic manifestations of the drug.

Bakuci is very popularly used for the treatment of this disease both in Ayurveda and allopathy. A paste prepared from the seeds of this drug is applied externally. The powder of this drug mixed with the decoction of khadira and amalaki is given to the patient in a dose of 1/2 teaspoon twice daily. The oil prepared by boiling gunja is also advisable for the treatment of leucoderma.

Diet to taken by Leucoderma patients: The patient should not be given salt in any form. The more he avoids salt the quicker will be the action of the drug. If found essential, rock-salt can be given in a small quantity only. Spices and other pungent things should be avoided. Vegetables having bitter taste like bitter gourd and bitter variety of drumstick are useful.

Other regimens: The leucoderma patient should not expose himself to heat or sun in excess. Psychic factors are known to be responsible for precipitation and aggravation of this disease. The patient should, therefore, try to keep himself free from worry, anxiety and other forms of mental strain. Remaining awake at night for long should be avoided. Medicines suggested work better if the patient is free from constipation.
